INDEPENDENT TREASURY. SPEECH OF HON. JAMES BUCHANAN, OF PENNSYLVANIA. IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, JANUARY 22, 1840, ON THE INDEPENDENT TREASURY BILL; IN REPLY TO MR. CLAY, OF KENTUCKY.

Washington: Congressional Globe Office, 1856. 16pp, disbound. Caption title [as issued], partly loosened, outer leaves tanned.. Good+.

In order to show where Buchanan really stood on the issue of an Independent Treasury, this 1840 speech is printed to support his 1856 run for the presidency on the Democratic ticket, and to rebut what is referred to as "the ten cent calumny." Buchanan has been a down-the-line Jacksonian, and a consistent foe of the Whig aristocrats. Not in Sabin. Item #11732

Price: $40.00
